How to be better…

25 Sep 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog

Let me be honest: I used to to annoy the junk out of my boss about getting the C100mrk 2… for anyone who doesn’t know, that a very fancy name for a very fancy camera. For a whole year I tried to weasel into every…

God and Diet Coke

18 Sep 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

At Silent Images I’m a professional creative and missionary, so being passion is part of the job description. So y’all can imagine my dismay on those days when I’m staring at my computer screen saying, “I’ve got nothing.” Those are the days I wonder if I should update my resume…

Reflections in Traffic

04 Sep 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

My life is busy. There’s little time to stop and reflect. The other day I was headed home and was stuck in traffic waiting to get on the interstate. To the right of my car was a man, standing beside the on ramp to 485. There…

Honestly, I’d rather stay in bed.

28 Aug 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog

Can I be honest? Some days it’s a challenge to leave my bed. Would I love to stay there all day just reading and watching movies? Absolutely. It’s my happy place. But you can’t grow much just chilling in your bed. And as much as I love…

Ignoble Beginnings

21 Aug 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

My mission at Silent Images really began with a great display of laziness. We all have our own particular form of laziness: binge watching seasons of Friends on Netflix, taking naps at their desks when the boss isn’t watching, letting dishes and laundry pile up… For…

“Sluts”

07 Aug 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog

“Sluts,”  Jackson mumbled under his breath as he and his two brothers walk past Mary and her friends. The women do not bother looking up; they stay focused on their hands as they create colorful, beaded bracelets and necklaces.  Mary and Josephine did not bother explaining that…

Real Men Cry

31 Jul 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

I love seeing grown men cry! Seriously, one of my favorite things in the world. I know that makes me sound a little heartless, but I just love seeing that real men have hearts that can be moved to tears. One of my favorite crying men…

Fleeting First Impressions

24 Jul 2015, Posted by silentimages in Africa, Blog, Refocus

These are the first and last pictures taken on my trip in Liberia.   The first picture was taken right after I got off the plane where the CDC required us to wash our hands with bleach. The presence of Ebola was so real. Everyone walked…

Changing the World… hopefully

17 Jul 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

I’m sitting at Starbucks, I just burned my mouth because I’m never patient enough to wait for my caramel latte to cool down, and I’m pondering the praise of my friend: “You’re job must make you feel like you’re changing the world.” And all I…

Lessons from The Intern

10 Jul 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog

My name is Megan and I’m the summer intern. Being an intern has been a great opportunity packed with a number of new experiences. Coming into a new job and environment I was nervous; lacking confidence with the amount of experience I had in video…

Gaby : Extraordinaire

29 Jun 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog

Well, this is the first time we’ve met! I’m Gaby. Let’s get acquainted, shall we… I’m a small girl from a big city; NYC, to be precise. I’m a chameleon that can adapt to many situations: once I acted in one of Lydia’s videos, which entailed…

The Most Significant Journey

19 Jun 2015, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

Ever since I was a young boy, I have longed for adventure. Whether it was the woods behind my house or racing down steep hills on my bike, I wanted to test my limits. I needed to know I had what it took to be…
